Hay guys! Happy Tuesday. Tuesday is my seventh favorite day of the week. My morning got off to a pretty good shart.
For once I wasn't late for my bus and my cowlick seemed to be less pronounced than it is on most days thanks to the cooler SF weather. I tripped walked onto Muni with every intention of spending my 25 minute commute scrolling through my instagram feed and sifting through my split ends. I Rosa Parked my butt into a seat near the rear of the bus. Just as I began refreshing my instagram newsfeed I heard a gurl talking to her friend rather loudly about her "baby daddy." She looked exactly like Tanya Harding. I must snap a photo of her for toe pick, I thought to myself. It had been awhile since I'd featured Muni Celeb Lookalikes on Toe Pick and to be frank (I'm not really Frank - I'm Alexandra), I've missed it.
The trick to successfully snapping a photo of an unassuming member of the American Pube-lic is to avoid holding your phone directly toward your subject whilst ensuring he or she is still in your peripheral vision. You can always crop the photo if you don't get a centered shot of your muni-celeb lookalike. Stare at your phone intently, as if you're completely engrossed in a steamy sext message you've received from your significant other. ALWAYS make sure the flash is off and your phone is on silent so it doesn't make a clicking noise when you snap your photo.
Welp, it turns out I'm a bit rusty when it comes to snapping muni photos discreetly because just as I went in to snap the photo of the Tanya Harding lookalike who wasn't paying attention, I failed to notice her friend who was paying attention and shot me the dirtiest look ever in the history of dirty looks. I swiftly stowed my phone and ended up getting a blurred shot of Tanya's shoe. My blunder this morning reminded me of happier times, when I was able to successfully capture shots of Muni riders. Have a look at this compilation of Celeb Muni Lookalikes.

"I'M LIKE THE LEAST VIRGIN-Y VIRGIN EVER."
This fellow looked like the late Freddie Mercury (lead singer of Queen in case you're missing a brain chip). I even managed to get an almost-profile shot of him just for you guys.

This woman's outfit reminded me of some lettuce bagels I spotted yesterday. Yes - lettuce bagels. What the fuck else would you call these?
